While many leaks have emerged around OnePlus 6T, one of the most rumoured specification is that of the fingerprint scanner coming under the phone's screen. It will rely on Face Unlock and the new tech in-display fingerprint sensor instead to lock/unlock the phones.

According to the American media website CNET, OnePlus has confirmed that the new flagship will be equipped with an in-display fingerprint sensor.

OnePlus pointed out that users unlock their devices "multiple times" during the course of the day.

Before the iPhone X launched previous year, there were rumors of Apple working on getting the in-display fingerprint technology ready in time for use on the handset.

Hurricane Florence: 'Extremely dangerous' storm to hit US East Coast on Thursday
Gradual weakening was expected Tuesday night and last until Helene returns to tropical storm status Thursday, forecasters said. On North Carolina's Ocracoke Island, part of the Outer Banks, Tom Pahl, 66, said he was getting ready to board up his house.


The technology comprises an optical sensor embedded underneath an OLED panel, which illuminates and reads the user's fingerprint when they place their finger on the display.

In addition to confirming the inclusion of this feature, the company also started teasing a "Top Secret Message", likely for the upcoming device.

Like many Android handset makers, OnePlus has adapted quickly to the move to bigger and taller displays by moving the Home button off of the front of the phone and to the rear, which it did first with the OnePlus 5T. We don't yet know what will be the goal of the third camera: it could be a telephoto lens, a super wide-angle lens or a dedicated black-and-white shooter (our bet is on a tele lens). As it turns out, the OnePlus 6T will indeed use fingerprint on display, which is a relatively young technology that's pretty exciting from a functionality standpoint. Now that it is going to be included in the 6T means a slight redesign of the phone.

In order to add the new unlocking functionality, OnePlus claimed the design of the 6T had to be altered when compared to its predecessor. A screenshot of the OnePlus 6T lock screen refers to October 17.
